Tax Talk #45: Alison Redford's Legacy w/ Derek Fildebrandt

March 31, 2014
Tax Talk #45: Alison Redford's Legacy w/ Derek Fildebrandt

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation's popular Tax Talk podcast is now a video broadcast on our YouTube channel

It's always shocking when a provincial premier resigns suddenly, but especially when it happens in Alberta -- a province known for its political stability. In the 109 years since the wild rose province joined confederation, they have had only 14 premiers. But Alison Redford, just two and a half years after becoming premier stepped down on March 19 due, in no small part, to some outrageous waste of taxpayer dollars. The CTF's Alberta director, Derek Fildebrandt, joined Tax Talk host Jordan Bateman to talk about Redford's legacy. (Note: this was taped BEFORE the condo controversy, in case you wonder why we don't address that particular elephant in the room.)

Plus our usual features -- our Comment of the Cast and Waste of the Week.
